PGL announces huge Dota 2 events for 2024 and beyond

With tournament organizers filling the gaps left by the cancellation of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), I had some concerns about Dota 2 esports leading up to The International 2024 and beyond. Tournament organizer PGL has, for all intents and purposes, smashed all concerns to bits, announcing massive Dota 2 events for years to come.

In an exciting blog post, PGL officially revealed a three-year commitment and expansion in Dota 2 esports, with at least eight huge tournaments featuring $1 million prize pools, with two events in 2024 and the first one starting relatively soon!
